hehe - boys, you see if they can get someone else to do it (mine is like it with his collar on his shirt, he is 6)
I always taught my son to roll his sock down, bunch it up with both hands, put his toes in, straighten it up if required then pull it up bit by bit, HTH slightly x
Amelie could do her own socks really young so I cant give you much advice, but if an 18 month old can put on their socks (and shoes) then I assume a 5 year old can too if he WANTS to. I think he's giving you the run around Stop doing it for him and make him do it himself. Like say 'oh we're going to play outside but you need to put socks and shoes on first'.. i bet he'd do it then.
